Saturday Links from World Equestrian Brands

The FEI season is officially underway here in the U.S. with the Bouckaert Equestrian H.T. International kicking things off in Fairburn, Georgia. Weather scares and flooding on the cross country course as late as Thursday probably triggered a little PTSD from last season for many competitors, but all is well and the Advanced, Intermediate, and FEI divisions all did their dressage and cross country tests yesterday.

As usual this early in the season competitors took things slow across country, all gathering handfuls of time penalties, but it will still be fun to see how things shake out during today’s showjumping. There’s a tight race for top of the 4*-S division for example, with Hannah Sue Hollberg and Capitol HIM leading on a score of 43.3 and Phillip Dutton with his new ride Jewelent nipping at their heels just 0.3 penalties points behind. Use the handy links below to follow along with the event yourself and stay tuned for a full final report early next week!
